Samsung, Strathmore unveil ‘tab classrooms’


For the first time in Kenya, students enrolling at the Strathmore University to pursue their Executive Master of Business Administration (MBA) program will receive their course content and related materials digitally through the Samsung Learning Management Solution [Samsung LMS].


Speaking at the Strathmore University, Samsung Electronics Business Leader Robert Ngeru disclosed that the Samsung E-learning solution has been custom designed to raise Strathmore’s academic delivery efficiencies, starting with the May intake.


As part of the development, Ngeru said, Samsung has deployed its end-to-end Learning Management Solution which leverages the use of Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tablets linked to a Samsung Electronic board allowing for an interactive in and out of classroom learning experience.


“As part of our enterprise solutions development capacity, we are proud to be unveiling this one of a kind solution in Kenya’s premier Business School which we trust will help raise coursework delivery efficiencies,” he said.

Speaking during the ceremony, the Strathmore Business School Dean Dr Edward Mungai noted that adopting E – learning is a positive move towards enhancing leaders’ capacity to deal with not only local challenges, but also focus on the global level.


“The current globalised environment, demands that the leaders are not only aware of their local challenges, but are also prepared to fight it out in an international arena, both in the East African region and beyond,” Mungai explained.


And added: “The new Samsung Learning Management Solution will facilitate efficient learning both in and out of the lecture halls thus supporting our endeavours to transform leadership in Africa, through a world class learning environment.”


The solution, which will connect the e-board and Galaxy Tab 10.1 via a Wi-Fi connection, allows for multiple functionalities such as study resources, sharing via a learning management application (app) pre-installed on the tablets.
